Tortured Logic

So it turns out that prisoners at Guantanamo were tortured not to prevent another attack, but because the Bush-Cheney Administration had already decided to invade Iraq, and were desperate to find a link between Al Quaeda and Saddam Hussein's Iraq. The White House ordered the torture intensified when no such evidence was forthcoming.

Here is evidence in a newly released document.

I can't decide which is more shocking, torture being used to find or manufacture a case for a predetermined war, or our passive equanimity in the face of this news.

We hanged people at Nuremberg for less than this.
